Pizzicato Pieces Book 2

Price £9.50

A range of more advanced pieces for pizzicato double than in Book 1. Kampi & Kompi are lively and rhythmic with a jazz feel and drive; Two Pieces for TDR are in Latin-Jazz and Swing moods; Two for Ray [Brown] are in memory of the jazz legend and Pizz-Aria 1 is an extended rhapsodic movement full of melodic and lyrical charm but will effective technical challenges.

"These are fine performance pieces which allow the play to explore many possibilities of pizzicato playing while advancing their technique in this area. They are suitable for all but the most elementary levels and their varying lengths enable them to slot neatly into most programmes." [Double Bassist]

"This set of advanced concert studies moves on from Teppo's first collection of pizzicato pieces, and contains many more technical challenges. Of the four titles within, half have two seperable movements, thus giving six possible performance pieces. Some are explorations in improvisatory style; others in developing rhythmic patterns. Some are jazz-based (two being dedicated to the late Ray Brown). The set concludes with an extended etude using many double stops. In some ways Pizzicato Pieces 2, although harder overall, complements the first volume by providing a wealth of material to support the learning and performance of advanced pizzicato technique."
